I survived a shark attack

Dramatic footage shows a diver being bitten on the leg by a shark off the coast of Egypt – and living to tell the tale.

In June 2018, Alexander Kraenkl was diving in the Red Sea when he encountered the oceanic whitetip shark.

The 51-year-old, who lives in Austria, spotted the predator swimming towards him and tried to grab the anchor rope to lift himself to safety – but it was too late.

The shark viciously bit Alexander's right thigh, just below a safety item hanging from his dive vest.
